Michael Rogan is the author of seven books including “Screenwriting Made (Stupidly) Easy” and “How to Write a Screenplay That Doesn’t Suck and Will Actually Sell.”
He’s also a former Hollywood screenplay reader, has two optioned screenplays under his belt – one of which was a romantic comedy that was neither romantic, nor funny – and spent nearly five years entertaining sunburnt tourists as the Dolphin Show host at Sea World. (Not as glamourous as it sounds.)
He is the founder and publisher of ScriptBully magazine, an inbox magazine devoted to helping screenwriters write well, sell scripts and achieve the full-time writing career they’ve always dreamed of.
Michael Rogan has spent nearly fifteen years as a playwright, screenwriter, and Hollywood screenplay reader. (Not to mention part-time hockey correspondent.)
In 2011, he fled his script reader cubicle – and Santa Monica parking spot – and launched ScriptBully – a publisher devoted to creating products and resources to help screenwriters kick ass and change the world with their stories.
He is the author of several books:
How to Write a Screenplay That Doesn’t Suck (ScriptBully Press)
How to Write a Movie Script With Characters That Don’t Suck (ScriptBully Press)
How to Write With a Script With Dialogue That Doesn’t Suck (ScriptBully Press)
Screenplay Format Made (Stupidly) Easy (ScriptBully Press)
Selling a Screenplay in the 21st Century (ScriptBully Press)
Michael Rogan lives in Southern California with his brainy chemistry teacher wife and a Jack Russell Terrier who likes to eat headphones.
